Question about Wine Coolerdor RH%

OK... I live in SoCal so I'm building a Wine Coolerdor as the summer heat is coming. I'm wondering about the RH% and how low it dips during the cooling phase. I have an EdgeStar 28 Bottle Thermoelectric Wine Cooler (model TWR281S) and I hooked it up to a Temp Controller set with a 69F set point and 4 degree cooling zone to keep everything at 69-65 F. I have 2 pounds of Viper's 65% beads working hard to keep RH where it should be but I'm seeing big dips in RH during the cooling cycle and wonder if that is normal? Here is a chart of min by min Temp and RH% through a whole cycle:

0:00 70% 69.0 Start Cycle
0:01 70% 68.9 Start Cooling

2:24 70% 69.0 End Of Cycle

Average 64% 67.2
High 70% 69.0
Low 54% 65.3


I'm happy with the Average RH% but don't like the dips down to 54%... Is this normal? I know that I will see some dip during the cooling phase but I was not expecting the dips to be this low.
